which strainer with Silgranit sink?

I always assumed it would be stainless, but now I see they also come in the color of the sink. Ours will be Biscuit. I don't think I've seen the light-colored strainers.

Opinions? Experience? Durability differences?

We just got the cinder ones. I don't know how they will be. They are plastic, but from what I read on here from others who have, they have been pleased with them. Ours isn't installed yet, but it put in in the sink and it looks nice.

I have had the Cafe Brown strainer for a couple of months now, has held up fine. I think they are overpriced, but I like the way it looks better than stainless. I also spray painted my white air switch button to match!

Thanks, Andrea and fishymom, I think we'll try the biscuit and see how it goes!

Are you installing a garbage disposal? Those tend to have a chrome one. Something to keep in mind. Not sure if you want two different colors.

I have a garbage disposal, Blanco makes a strainer for garbage disposals that includes a cover for the flange.

Like fishymom said, Blanco makes both the regular strainer and one that covers the GD flange. We have a double bowl sink and one side will have the regular strainer and the other will have the GD one. The GD one snaps into place over the existing GD flange.

We won't have a disposal, so at least that's one less variable to consider!
